FULL DISCLOSURE: I am one of the developers of Kokorogawari.

Precatio has launched the first trial of Kokorogawari via the game’s itch.io page and Lemma Soft Forums post. The first trial runs for approximately 45 minutes and covers about 50% of the first common route chapter. Demo players are encouraged to leave feedback via the aforementioned pages, the official blog or on Precatio’s Twitter @Precatio_VN (#kokorogawari). Until the end of August, there will be a Trial Promotion where the regular price of the game is reduced to $22 for the standard edition (normally $25) and $32 for the limited edition (normally $35). In addition, readers who preorder will have a special surprise in store for them that can be obtained when the full game is released.

 

 In the 18/8/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 04/8/2016), Collar x Malice was reviewed. It scored 33 (9/8/8/8), earning it a Famitsuu Gold award. For those unfamiliar with the Famitsuu Cross Review scoring system, it involves a panel of 4 game critics reviewing the same game with each critic giving it a score from 0~10. This makes 40 the highest possible score, with awards of distinction being given to games earning: 30~31/40 = Famitsuu Silver, 32~34/40 = Famitsuu Gold and 35+/40 = Famitsuu Platinum.

 

The artist of popular Otomate series official chibis Natsume Uta will have an artbook of them released by Hifumi Books called Candy pot. Candy pot will hit stores on 12/8.

 

During Koei Tecmo’s otome Neoromance event (which was held on 21/7/2016), they’ve announced that a new otome game is in the works. However, details are scarce at this stage, though interested fans can watch two informational videos that hint at what themes may be present.

 

7’Scarlet have started a character popularity poll on 01/8/2016. Fans of the game have until 22/8 to vote for their favourite characters.

 

Kadokawa will be publishing an official Kenka Banchou Otome fanbook with Dengeki Girl’sStyle as contributors assisting with its contents. The fanbook will be available for purchase on 31/8.

 

Following the release date announcement of Ken ga Kimi’s fandisc, Ken ga Kimi: Momoyo Tsuzuri, Rejet have revealed that a single containing the fandisc’s OP and ED will be sold a day before the game’s release (21/12) called Mahoroba no Sora.  In addition to the songs, an audio drama featuring the main cast will be included. The OP is called “Mahoroba no Sora” and is sung by Ono Yuuki and KENN. The ED is untitled as of now but will be sung by lasah.

  1. kiri

    Just want to let you know pil vamp have opened teaser site for their second r18 otome game. Your post is amazing (*’∀’人)♥*+

    • Good evening, kiri!

      Thanks very much for the tip-off! I now vaguely remember them mentioning a second project but I had no idea they’ve moved onto the next one so fast!

      Thanks again, and I’ll be sure to amend this week’s post and include it next week (credit to you, of course). =)

  2. Omg lol it’s a sequel to the Haruka otoge. I stupidly thought it was a remake this whole time.

    • Haha, Koei Tecmo is way above remaking games that don’t need remaking unlike SOME companies! ;P

      • Aw yeah!!!
        The only thing that’s scaring me about this game is the fact that everyone says how LONG they are. It seems like my kind of game but the length of it and the fact that its steeped in its own lore is intimidating.

Don't be shy, leave a reply!
